campaign believes the countries demographics have changed the electorate in your favor. the romney campaign believes you have the momentum to swing over. it's possible we are headed for a 50/50 split. it all comes down to nine states or seven or five? whatever the result. polarization is hardening. the house has changed hands three times in the last two decades. two of those times have been in the last six years. red states are getting redder and blue states are getting bluer. the even in the swing states, giving county maps that watch work look if you will. shifting demographics are changing, the makeup of the electorate in 1980 whites made up nine of every ten voters. but by 2008 that number dropped to 74%. one of tuesday's most important predictors will be that important makeup. it's very possible that the president could win with the lowest share of blue collar whites since 1984 because the republican party is likely to get the lowest share of latino and african-americans in its history. we're a 50/50 country deciding whether taxes go up or down, how you get health insurance. t

change. but here is the thing, florida, we know what changed looks like. what mitt romney is offering is not it. giving more power back to the biggest bang -- biggest banks is not change. another five trillion in tax cuts for the wealthy is not change. refusing to answer questions about the details of your policy is definitely not change. politicians have been during that long time. ruling out compromise by pledging to reverse the of the agenda in congress is not changed. changing the fax when they are inconvenient to your campaign, that certainly is not change. here is the thing, when you make this choice, who do trust? he did not know what crisis the next president will confront. you do not know what challenge you have to be that is unexpected. part of what you are focused on is how does someone operate? florida, after four years of president, you know we might now. you may not agree with every decision i've made, michelle does not agree with every decision i've made, and you may be frustrated some time with the change of pace, i am frustrated sometimes, but here is the thing, you k

opportunity for mitt romney to change the momentum yet once again. we've seen it changed so many times. >> let's go to candy crowley. of course, when you look at polls, it's mitt romney who gets the advantage, when people are asked about what's the thing you care about the most and who would do the better job, it's the economy and mitt romney. >> it is. but when you ask folks that other question that pollsters always look at, who understands the life or needs of people like you, president obama always scores higher on that. so there's kind of this macro picture. people look at mitt romney and say i think actually he would be better fixing the economy as a whole. but then when you ask them who understands you, who understands what's going on in your life, they say president obama. i think that obviously there is some conflict there. but closer to home you get, i think as a candidate the better your chance. now i can also tell you that the romney campaign is looking at its own numbers, all the numbers we see and they still see a clear path, they say, to victory. as do both sides. it's on

it and we have seen the romney campaign promising big change, trying to reconfigure that position on the auto bailout. there is the same thread that runs between these two things. what happens when everything fails? what happens when the markets bottom out, there is no other source of funding out there, except for the federal government and the federal reserve. there is no other relief that you can find for the state other than federal dollars or federal technical expertise. what does government do in those situations? and that's not an abstract argument. that's very real. >> what makes the firemen jump into the burning building, the police officer go in the streets after midnight in a flood zone, the national guard deployed. it's duty, it's service and those are things you get with government. >> yes. >> and this kind of situation, that you can't always get out of the private sector because it's there for a different reason. >> no incentive. it's those public sector workers who have been vilified since the tea party sort of came to the fore and the public sector workers, you can't p
